PEN Canada and the PEN American Centre are throwing their support behind a Mexican campaign to stop the killing of journalists in the country, dubbed one of the most dangerous in the Americas for media. "Ni Uno Más" ("Not One More") is a coalition of non-governmental organizations that seeks to pressure Mexican authorities into bringing the killers of journalists to justice.

A very important initiative.

In Mexico, it's covering drug trafficking that is getting journalists killed. But I suppose the issue is that Mexican authorities don't seem all that competent, or even interested, in investigating these cases.

I should think that things are similar, even worse, in Colombia, where drugs and politics become inextricable. But PEN may have more leverage in Mexico in the short term.
